you know that. it is the hottest travel weekend of the year, and yet so many people lose their cool when they're flying over the holidays. >> you're just cramped, you're in tight quarters. so we turned to genevieve for information on traveling during the holidays. >> for people who travel once or twice a year, traveling around the holidays can be stressful. there are longer lines at security, airports are crowded, parking lots are crowded. there are a few ways you can minimize the stress and not become overwhelmed. first, picking the right lane at security has a huge advantage. there's an expert lane, a yaca s cassual traveler lane, and family lane. so picking the lane that best describes you will help you get through security more easily and with less stress. taking the first flight of the day is often the least stressful
3:14 am
flight of the day because it's the most likely to be on time and there are far fewer crowds and shorter lines at the airport early in the morning. knowing what to put in your carry-on is very important during the holidays. you need to make sure that you put everything you can't live without like medications and cell phone chargers in your carry-on bag. once you check a bag, that's the last time you're going to see your bag until you get to your destination. and if your flight is delayed or baggage is lost, you want to make sure you have all of the necessary items with you. taking direct flights can be a huge stress saver. they're more expensive. every time you make a connection on a flight, you're increasing your chances of something going wrong on your trip. taking a direct flight can really minimize the stress. if you need to make a connecting flight, make sure you book a flight that allows you at least two hours to make your connection. that will account for any delays
3:15 am
on your first flight, and ensure that you don't miss your second flight to your destination. >> lot of advice. >> travel is so much fun these days, isn't it? another good tip. taking gifts with you to where you may be going. don't wrap them. put them in a gift bag in case tsa wants to inexpect it. don't ruin your wrapping job. put them in a bag. travel that way. and have them tear through the paper to inspect your elmo doll. there you go. >> oh, nice. >> you look so natural. there you go. >> look at you, brandi, natural. there you go. >> i didn't know this. this is fantastic. >> we have a great graphics department. they always, yeah, look at the back, insomniac airline. >> nice. hopefully able to sleep on the flight. >> this way, this way. turn your snack trays up. all of that. we'll be back with more after this. >> announcer: "world news now" continues after this from our abc stations. , insomniac airline. >> nice. hopefully able to sleep on the flight. >> this way, this way. turn your snack trays up.
